We recently welcomed Mattapoisett Boatyard to Dockwa, and lo and behold one of our first Boater Bloggers just happens to have a post about this cool little town! We welcome back Dave Horne of My Buzzards Bay to share his highlights from first-hand experience.
I’ve boated and lived in Mattapoisett since I was a kid, so it was never a destination to me. The truth is, it’s really a great one.
Mattapoisett is a quaint little seaside town with tons of history and character. Back in the days when New Bedford was the Whaling capital of the world, Mattapoisett is where the ships were built.
The first reason to visit Mattapoisett: It’s a generally well-protected harbor for all but a strong Southeast wind – which is pretty rare on Buzzards Bay.
